Meet Jessie May Wolfe of HeartRise Movement in Venice

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jessie May Wolfe.

Jessie May, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I’ve always been a curious one. Longing to understand the deeper meaning of life and what connects us… This curiosity propelled every chapter of my journey and has ultimately always been the creative fuel for my heart fire…

From globe trotting adventures to various creative industries~ an entrepreneurial spirit drove my curiosity and guided my wild heart. From the publishing and fashion world to my studies and training in various modalities of human development ~ I landed here LA ~ coaching and leading workshops in the wellness and innovation space… where HeartRise was born.

A true fusion of my life experience and leadership training, healing modalities and creative spirit ~ HeartRise is my life’s work ~ a powerful, accessible modern method to plug into the same power and wisdom – we all have inside. The conviction to stay true to our deepest heart yearning and this very pulse of curiosity and connection resides within each of us. When we let it lead, when we ignite this native intelligence ~ we come alive. It’s a language of heart that has always been my visionary song- and now I get to teach others how to empower theirs!

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Oh wow. Not at all!! It’s been bumpy and challenging and rewarding all the same. The lessons and obstacles only deepened my conviction. Probably the biggest hurdle was my Visa. Being from Montreal (Canada) – it was NOT obvious to live or work here, let alone start a movement and develop a method that we bring into companies and schools! Their systems were created in the 50’s and neither HeartRise nor I fit into one of their cookie cutter boxes!! I didn’t let it stop me though- where there’s a committed heart, you will always find your way!

Additionally, the word HEART can be confronting for many… so I was met with some resistance from overly analytical types I call “head trippers” – who would be in judgment about the name before knowing anything about it – until they had a HeartRise experience when something in them would shift… and wake up… I also found that just by meeting them with my authentic voice, speaking from my heart always help to appease any initial skepticism.

The beauty is in the spirit of ‘connection as our greatest currency’- which is our mission and mantra- I’ve been very fortunate and grateful to connect with some of the most incredible brave hearts ~ who have each been integral in helping to build and grow this movement, and getting the method into places that need it most.

Please tell us about HeartRise Movement.
Our HeartRise Method is a practical process which ignites the intelligence of the human heart as a generative force>> to unleash potential, cultivate connection and empower innovation. Ultimately, when hearts are aligned and in FLOW, you can create a culture of belonging and move mountains. While it is a meditation style – it is SO MUCH MORE. It can be used to recalibrate you, those around you, your team personally or professionally, and your community. We have full programs that we bring into companies and schools to help build better communication, leadership, creativity and create cultures of belonging!

It’s science-based and very accessible and has been deeply rewarding to feel the waves we’re making at a time when the world needs more heartfelt connection than ever. It’s proven to be bigger than I ever imagined possible, but that’s the remarkable power of the heart…it’s ever evolving and revealing more truth, wisdom and guidance as the journey unfolds. Many have been called to join us. One heart ignited illuminates all those it touches. Our radiance is contagious, and connection is our greatest currency. As we join hearts, we build bridges.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
I wouldn’t really change much… every step has stretched me- even the challenging ones. Each step has informed the path and really anchored this method and teachings in rich meaning and grounded experience.

I guess the one thing I may have done more of – is asking for help earlier… reaching out and calling in support. As an entrepreneur, especially- I had more pride when I began and with time, humility and courage took over.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help… it’s one of the essential dynamics we’ve created within our HeartRise community – a supportive space to encourage each others’ dreams and vision and to ask for help when you need it. There are too many out there braving it alone- which is both lonely and unsustainable… and we need each other to thrive. That’s what makes the ride worthwhile!
